Remap Hertfordshire South is the local branch of a national charity dedicated to designing and producing custom-made equipment to cater to all ages and mobility needs. As part of a national charity that uses experienced mechanical, electrical, computing engineers and woodworkers to complete 3,500 projects every year, you can trust them to make quality equipment which is absolutely free of charge!
They recently built a set of parallel bars for a young boy with cerebral palsy. The equipment allowed him to take huge strides in learning how to walk and gain confidence in his own ability. The video of him smiling and laughing as he makes great progress even went viral with 3 million views online!
Remap Hertfordshire South not only creates aids for essential needs, they also cater to people’s interests. Recently they adapted a guitar tuner for a keen player with visual impairment. The adapted equipment converted the visual display into an audio signal to indicate if the note is too high or low. Adaptations like this can make all the difference to someone’s life.
Their dedication to helping disabled people live more independent lives has led them to create a vast range of equipment including:
- Chair and sofa raises
- Adapted board games
- Window openers
- Step devices
- Communication devices
- Hob cover
